About this Artist

Johnnyswim is the husband-and-wife duo of Abner Ramirez and Amanda Sudano, the latter of whom is the daughter of disco and R&B legend Donna Summer.

The pair met in Nashville in 2005, instituting a songwriting partnership not long afterward. They clicked musically and personally, beginning a romantic relationship along with their creative connection. Choosing the name Johnnyswim, they released their debut EP, 1-4, in 2008. The couple married in 2009 and relocated to Los Angeles. A second EP, 5-8, appeared in 2010, supported by tours along with residencies in New York and Los Angeles. Home, Vol. 1, a third EP that emphasized their country roots, arrived in 2012. By this point they'd started getting attention from fashion quarters, including icons Tommy Hilfiger and Louis Vuitton, which in turn attracted the interest of record labels. Soon, Johnnyswim signed with Big Picnic, distributed by Sony/RED, and began working regularly, appearing on TV shows ranging from VH1's Mob Wives to NBC's Tonight Show. They also continued to work on their full-length debut, Diamonds, which appeared in 2014.

A Christmas collection and live album followed, with their sophomore set arriving in 2016. Georgica Pond featured the single "Drunks," a guest appearance by Vince Gill, and a cover of Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game." The pair followed with the Goodbye Road EP, a collaboration with Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors. The set included the single "Ring the Bells," as well as guest vocals from Penny & Sparrow. ~ Steve Leggett, Rovi
